  • I know deeply on how funk and soul was modernized. Before Rick James, the funk and soul craze started with the old soul crooners of the 1960s and 1970s, especially Al Green, Wilson Pickett, and all of this built up to "The Godfather of Soul"--James Brown. The rise of the Memphis horn section in the 1970s, a great soul crooner, Marvin Gaye, as well as the rise of the disco era in that decade, allowed funk and soul to flourish more greatly. This is how house bands in disco incorporated funk and soul in their disco numbers. Disco Demolition in 1979, regrettably, tried to put out disco-laden funk and soul for good, but there was a happy backlash--even though disco died, funk and soul survived in the 1980s decade onward. Funk and soul groups then added R and B to the mix, making a sort of retro-disco sound that led to artists like Michael Jackson, the Gap Band, The Time, Prince, and finally--Rick James and his band. Rick pushed the envelope of funk with such songs as "Mary Jane."
